Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Thanks to Aaron. Cloudy amber - brown beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Airy fluffy palate, dry. Light yeast. Light cherry sourness, not overdone. Finishes dry and airy. Okay if a bit dry.

Cloudy amber color, creamy head. Light aroma of hazelnuts and cherry pits, then some cherry, with a sour impression. Highly carbonated, a bit salty, with some yeast spiciness, light cherry fruitiness, and moderate final astringency. A bit rough but good.

Bottle in NH thanks to Wally. Pours cloudy, golden-brown with a fine, creamy, off-white head. Lightly tangy and dank cherries in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor with ripe and faint tart cherries, mild funk, some bitter cherry pits. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly juicy. Very nice stuff overall.

brokensail (12916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours a murky orange-red color with an off-white head. There is a very nice cherry aroma to this. Plenty of sweet fruit, a mild tartness, and some citrus zest. A hint of grass and mild barrel/wood character. The flavor is a bit watered down, it seems, but there is a very nice cherry character. Lots of fruit skins, too. Some grass, a bit of lemon zest, and mild wood. A moderate tartness, a bit of red wine, and a fair amount of yeast.

Theydon_Bois (12595) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle split at Craft Clerko, thanks to Aaron, 08/07/13. Murky reddish amber with a thin beige head which clears to a thin covering. Nose is light sugars, cherries, woody notes, almonds, soured berry fruit. Taste comprises light soured cherries, light sugars, woody tones, barnyard, straw. Medium bodied for an 8%+ offering, dry and crisp in the finish. Ok drinkable affair but a tad one dimensional.
